Subject: RE: BS: 'Queen no longer speaks Queen's English'
Personally I find it rather refreshing that the "cut-glass" and strangulated vowels are diminishing in the upper classes and on the BBC. All of these people used to think sex was something coal was carried in.What I do regret is the passing of good grammer into the history books.The first time I heard someone on the BBC news say " And from Moira and me,goodnight ", I sobbed like a great girly girl,and if you knew how I had been made to sweat blood in grammer class, you'd know why.
